FC Emmen-sc Heerenveen · in one day

27 'A big loss for Dick Lukkien.

Glenn Bijl, one of Emmen's most dangerous players, has to give up the fight with an injury.

The fullback is replaced by Ricardo van Rhijn.

23 'In the switch, Emmen is dangerous twice.

First, Heerenveen goalkeeper Mulder can process an attempt by Bijl into a corner kick, after which Miguel Araujo heads wide from close range.

In the opening phase in Emmen, the Frisians have the most ball possession, but with twenty minutes on the clock, great opportunities are still waiting.

12 'Now a cross from Joey Veerman finds a fellow player, but Pawel Bochniewicz does not know what to do with it and heads the ball over Telgenkamp's goal.

7 'Joey Veerman sends a pass in depth, but his pass is not understood by any of his teammates.

The possibility of becoming dangerous for the first time has been lost and so Emmen goalkeeper Telgenkamp is going to bring the ball back into play.

2 'The first danger of the match comes from the home team in Emmen.

Michael de Leeuw sees the cross of Caner Cavlan pass him by, but behind it is Glenn Bijl to take Mulder's goal at gunpoint.

The shot from the right back is very wild, so that the Heerenveen goalkeeper does not have to take action.

 The ball rolls in De Oude Meerdijk.

Can Emmen qualify for the quarterfinals of the cup tournament for the first time since the 1998/1999 season or will Heerenveen be in the draw for the draw on Saturday?

Heerenveen and Emmen already played against each other in the Eredivisie at the end of October in the Abe Lenstra Stadium.

Then the Frisians turned out to be a size too big and Heerenveen won 4-0.

Henk Veerman had a large share in the three-pointer with two goals.

That means that Siem de Jong, good for twenty goals in seven editions of the cup tournament, is also in the starting line-up.

FC Emmen-sc Heerenveen · in one day

First at 4.30 pm the duel between two clubs that are not going through a nice phase in the Eredivisie to say the least.

Heerenveen did not manage to win three points for ten games in a row, while Emmen did not win a game at all this Eredivisie season.

AZ-Ajax · in one day

AZ equals its own cup record from the eighties in victory over Ajax.

AZ-Ajax · in one day

The last match of tonight is not just one, because at 9 p.m. AZ and Ajax will compete against each other in Alkmaar.

AZ has presented itself as a true cup fighter in recent years.

After the 2010/2011 season, in which Ajax banned the Alkmaarders from the tournament, AZ always reached the quarter-finals of the cup tournament.
